Over $450k donated to bus monitor - "Wrong way to handle it" says Glenn

Glenn, Pat and Stu started the radio show on 3 different sides of an issue this morning - Over $465,000 had been donated to the harassed bus monitor, Karen Klein, as of 9am this morning (that number is probably over 600k now). While Stu thinks it’s just the way many American’s are showing that they care, Glenn doesn’t think it’s doing anything to solve the real problem – what’s going on in our culture.

“They've taken this awful moment, and I've got to be honest,” Stu said, “this has turned into the best thing that's ever happened to her, hasn't it?”

“It doesn't bother anybody else,” Glenn started, “but this really bothers me.”

Pat was bothered too. Not by the donations, however, he just wanted to know what Ms. Klein was going to do with the money. Dan Andros, one of Glenn’s writers in the New York office, had previously mentioned to the guys that he hoped she gives some of it to charity – Pat disagreed.

“Donates it? I'm giving it to you. I don't want you to turn around and give it to some cat society or something,” Pat said sarcastically.

Glenn took issue on an entirely different level. He doesn’t particularly care what she does with the money – it’s her money now, but what is this teaching the children that were so cruel to her? They’re being shown that their bad behavior is the best thing that ever happened to her in Glenn’s eyes.

Glenn wanted to know how many people are now saying, “I'd do that, I'll take that abuse.”

“Now we have officially made it into a game show,” Glenn said. “This was my monologue last night on television. These kids don't see her as a person. They see her as a YouTube video that they can get famous on. So they wanted to get famous. Well, now we've made it into a game show, and the prize money has gone to you! It's wrong. It's bad.”

Stu saw things a little differently. “Nobody's saying you can buy yourself out of the problems with American culture for $466,000, but you have changed this one person's life,” he said. “I mean, you've flipped this event for her from a really bad experience into something that obviously is changing her life.”

Pat was with Stu on this one. “What's wrong with that?” he asked.

Glenn compared the situation to what happened with the Trayvon Martin case where people took to the streets to show support. People ended up pointing fingers, the mainstream media redirected narratives. It was the wrong way to handle it.

“I mean, how many of us, as a culture, are soul searching, and how many of us now will just make this story, because it's a lot easier to deal with?” Glenn asked. “Look, all of this stuff happens for a reason. All of this stuff, they're warning signs. They're warning signs. And so we have a chance to humble ourselves and fix it and self-examine and say, "What is the culture that we're making? What is it that we're doing?" And I just fear that it's become a game show now.”

Glenn’s point was that we’re using money to mask the problem; no amount of money can solve the large scope of the problem. Stu’s point, however, is that people saw the video, felt terrible, and want the woman to be happy, which really just laid down more evidence for what Glenn was trying to say.

In the big picture, it’s not about the woman. This specific circumstance is – but the problem is with the culture that’s making America’s children believe that this is acceptable behavior. Glenn pointed to the parents of the children in this video who still hadn’t made their children apologize for their behavior. Instead of apologizing for their actions and feeling remorse for how they treated this woman, their parents are out giving press conferences on how their children “have been through enough”.

Anonymous released the information of these children on the internet – which Glenn vehemently disagreed with on air this morning. They should not have done that. But he did note that these children posted the video of their behavior on YouTube themselves.

“That's just not right. And that's not the way our society deals with it, either, but don't tell me that these kids have a problem being famous. That's why they posted it on YouTube,” Glenn said. “They wanted to be famous. And so now they're famous, they're infamous for a couple of days and now we're giving them the ability to say, "You know what? We really kind of helped her,” because that is exactly what they'll say.”

“These kids aren't going to feel bad years down the road,” Glenn added. “These kids are going to go, "We made her rich." It's a game show. Life is not a game show. Life is not a TV show. Life is not a reality show. Life is not a YouTube video. Life is life.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
